Communion with God (1)

 

I cannot recommend highly enough this treatise by arguably the greatest British Theologian, John Owen. Particularly the section on delighting in Christ from page 80. It is very clear from Scripture that Christ’s love for us and our love for Christ is expressed in delight, the one with the other. We are meant to ENJOY him and fellowship with him just as he, unbelievably delights in us! If you relish the covenant this is a must read! I will be summarising the best bits on this blogsite. Perhaps it’s worth noting that Owen uses the word “entertain” to describe the mutual delight of Christ and his bride…. see  Delight/entertain
